 Mixed Use

Mixed use development refers to development projects that comprise a mixture of land uses, or more than just a single use. In terms of planning permissions, it is land or
buildings used for different uses which fall into more than one use class.

 

A mixed-use aims to combine three or more uses into one structure. It brings together several uses within either one building or a small area.

  • Vertical: Combines different uses within the same building. Provides for more public uses on the lower floor such as retail shops, restaurants, of commercial businesses. Provides for more private uses on the upper floors such as residential units, hotel rooms, or office space

  • Horizontal: Spread over several buildings, these  individual buildings serve one or two specific  uses which allows for a range of land uses in a single development project. Provides for a variety of complementary and integrated uses that are walkable and within a given neighbourhood or development project

 

 Adaptable Environs

The capacity to change the built-environment in order to respond and fit to the evolving demands of its users/ environment maximizing value throughout its lifecycle

  • Movable: Allow temporary (Meanwhile spaces) to be moveable

  • Adjustable: Create places that can change in order to make it more suitable

  • Versatile: Allow space and places to lend itself to alternative use

  • Refitable: Restore and repair exiting places and spaces

  • Convertible: Allow flexibility with the design to allow for changes in use

  • Scalable: Create spaces whose size, performance, or number of users can be increased on demand without a penalty in cost or functionality.

  • Create a wide range tenure: long-term leasehold and rent; co-ownership/ co-partnership and co-tenancy; as well as shared equity, social and private rent, and owner occupation

 

 Inclusive Design

The design of an environment so that it can be

accessed and used by as many people as possible, regardless of age, gender and disability. Principles of Inclusive Design

 

  • Inclusive: so everyone can use it safely, easily and with dignity

  • Responsive: taking account of what people say they need and want

  • Flexible: so different people can use it in different ways

  • Convenient :so everyone can use it without too much effort or separation

  • Accommodating for all people, regardless of their age, gender, mobility, ethnicity or circumstances

  • Welcoming: with no disabling barriers that might exclude some people

  • Realistic: offering more than one solution to help balance everyone’s needs and recognising that one solution may not work for all
